Brooklyn's feature film debut in Jennifer Aniston's "Just Go With It" (2011) was stunning, stole the movie, and has led to many other acting jobs. She also made an impression in "Battleship" (2012).

Compared to many other top models, Brooklyn has a little meat on her bones, which makes some other girls feel a little more secure with themselves - Brooklyn just has her meat in all the right places.

Brooklyn graduated to national assignments after entering and winning a pageant at the Connections Model and Talent Convention, becoming the 2003 Model of the Year.

Doutzen Kroes, Dutch Phenomenon


Doutzen Kroes Victoria's Secret legends.filminspector.com

Doutzen Kroes (born 23 January 1985) is a Dutch model and actress.

Doutzen Kroes Victoria's Secret legends.filminspector.com


Doutzen walked in the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show from 2004-2014 and was a contract Angel from 2008-2014.

Doutzen Kroes Victoria's Secret legends.filminspector.com


Doutzen is one of the top-earning models and the face of L'Oréal.

Doutzen Kroes Victoria's Secret legends.filminspector.com


Born in a village in northern Holland (Friesland), Doutzen was a tomboy who grew out of it. However, she never grew out of her Friesland roots, and still promotes the traditional Friesland language.

She was accepted at Paparazzi Model Management and then went to New York City.

Doutzen is a top worldwide cover girl. Here is just a tiny sample of her work, all post-Angel:

  • January: Elle Russia

She was named by American Vogue readers as "Model of the Year" in 2005.

Victoria's Secret then used her a few times, liked her work, made her an Angel, and from there Doutzen was on her way.

Doutzen Kroes Victoria's Secret legends.filminspector.com


Doutzen is a major league cover girl: Time, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, Seventeen, Elle, Marie Claire, Glamour, W, Avantgarde, Dazed & Confused, and Numéro.

Doutzen Kroes Victoria's Secret legends.filminspector.com


Doutzen, unfortunately, announced in December 2014 that she was leaving Victoria's Secret for other projects.

Doutzen Kroes Victoria's Secret legends.filminspector.com



According to president Ed Razek, who has some influence on such matters:
Doutzen had a lucrative opportunity in Europe and it would have conflicted with her VS obligations.
However, Doutzen still finds time for Gucci, Tommy Hilfiger, Versace, Valentino, Blumarine and Calvin Klein when they come calling.

Doutzen also had one last hurrah as an Angel, appearing in the 2015 Victoria's Secret Valentine's Day ad that ran during the Super Bowl with a few other top Angels.

Having first walked the Victoria's Secret runway in 2008, when she also appeared in the prestigious Pirelli calendar.

Doutzen was a major player as an Angel and says that she enjoyed her time with the company.

Kroes has become a legendary figure in Holland, with her own wax figure at the Amsterdam Madame Tussaud's. Now that's fame!

Doutzen Kroes Victoria's Secret legends.filminspector.com


Doutzen is considered a "curvy" model. However, one look at Doutzen and you know that she has abs of steel. You could probably break an iron bar over Doutzen's abs. So, being considered curvy must be an extreme compliment for someone in such excellent shape.

Doutzen Kroes Victoria's Secret legends.filminspector.com


As a contract Victoria's Secret Angel, Doutzen would walk in the Victoria's Secret Fashion show every year.

Doutzen Kroes Victoria's Secret legends.filminspector.com


She walked the Victoria's Fashion Show runways for the last time in 2014 just five months after giving birth.

Doutzen Kroes still is in terrific shape even if that was her last hurrah as an Angel.

Doutzen Kroes Victoria's Secret legends.filminspector.com


Doutzen is taking acting classes and hopes to have a career as an actress in coming years. But make no mistake: even if she no longer is an Angel, she remains one of the world's top models in Europe. She also has said that she has a ticket on the first Dutch commercial space flight, whenver that happens.

Doutzen's acting lessons paid off when she appeared as Venella in 2017's successful movie "Wonder Woman." She also appeared in "Justice League" (2017) as the same character.

Doutzen received the high honor of gracing the cover of Vogue Netherlands for its fifth-anniversary issue in April 2017.

Just to sum up, Doutzen retired from being a Victoria's Secret Angel after the 2014 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, but she remains a top supermodel worldwide. You can keep up with Doutzen on Instagram.
